Welcome to the June 30, 2008 edition of pop goes the gospel. I wish to thank everyone who participated in this inaugural edition of Pop Goes the Gospel. If you intended to submit an article for this blog carnival but time just got away from you make sure you do not miss our next edition scheduled for July 30 2008. Submit your articles early to be sure you get them in before the deadline.
Now on with the carnival:
simplyeddie presents The Question Not Asked posted at Simple Life In Christ, Is doing a fine job with this blog there were several articles I would have liked to have seen submitted to this blog carnival but The Question Not Asked is a good one. Reflecting on the freedom Christ brings to a life bound by sin is truly inspiring.
Michael Snyder presents The Los Lunas Decalogue Stone – How In The World Did The Ten Commandments Get To America Before Columbus Did? posted at Shattered Paradigm.
Very interesting story postulating the thought that perhaps the Phoenicians traveled to North American long before Columbus made the trip.
in Church Life
Kathleen Gage presents Tithing – Fact or Fiction? posted at Daily Awareness, saying, “If you subscribe to virtually any religious or spiritual belief you’ve likely heard about tithing. Whether or not you are actually tithing is another thing.Tithing can be a very emotionally charged activity. It has been said that what you put out your receive back tenfold. Is this true or is it simply a way for a church or spiritual group to strong arm followers to give up their money? Some people believe wholeheartedly in the spiritual practice of tithing while others view it as manipulation.
Find out if tithing blesses or hinders.”
Julie Heath – More4kids Inc. presents Living Green – Dominion and Stewardship of God’s Creation posted at More4kids. Julie tackles the environmental issue with scripture. Be sure to check it out.
Crystal Nichols presents You are blessed. Now act like it! posted at Christian in the Corporate World. A gentle kick in the conscience about being thankful for all we have been blessed with as a nation and as a people. Crystal reminds us of the pitfalls of covetousness with the analogy of King David and Bathsheba.
Michael Snyder presents The Picture Of The Hindu God That Barack Obama Carries For Good Luck posted at Shattered Paradigm. Michael addresses the “hidden things” by looking at a Hindu god good luck charm that Barack Obama carries around with him. I wonder how many “secret things” we carry around in our hearts that would make God point a finger and say: “What’s up with that?” This article should make us all think and remember that God said everything hidden will be uncovered and be sure your secret sins will find you out. You can keep nothing secret from God.
in our media department
Allen in Fort Worth presents Can The Whos Hear Horton? posted at The Whited Sepulchre, saying, “here’s a parable from Dr. Seuss.” I loved the movie and enjoyed Allen’s post. Dr. Seuss was a childhood favorite and I guess some things just stick with you into adulthood. Nice job Allen.
My own submission for this carnival is: Is there a doctor in the “House”?
That concludes this edition. Submit your blog article to the next edition of pop goes the gospel using our carnival submission form. Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.
